To help you keep your smile in tip-top shape, Dr. Robert Morrison and our dental team have some helpful tips and information for you. If you take our tips into consideration, you can maintain strong and healthy teeth and gums as well as prevent major dental issues. No one wants cavities this summer, right? Right. So, please feel free to use our recommendations!

The first thing you need to do is clean your smile with a thorough oral hygiene routine. Remember to brush your teeth twice a day (in the morning and at night) with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Then, floss your teeth daily. To complete the cleaning job, rinse your mouth with mouthwash. Lastly, visit Dr. Robert Morrison regularly for your six-month checkups.

The second thing you need to do is wear a mouthguard while you participate in your favorite activities. If those activities are high in contact and can threaten your smile, it’s best to wear a mouthguard. Wearing a mouthguard can protect your smile when the hard balls or other objects hit your mouth.

The third thing you need to do is keep your smile in tip-top shape when you travel. In order to do so, you need to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. This can help you avoid dental issues while you’re on the road as well as when you’re back at home.
